Here is how to leverage Machine Builder to validate your robot reach!

There are multiple ways to validate the reach of your robot. Here are a couple ways:

  1. The easiest way to start is by simply enabling the reach bubble directly in Machine Builder. In order to do so, right click on your robot and select Show Robot Reach. Be aware that this reach is for the robot flange and does not take into consideration any EOAT.
  1. If you want to verify specific robot position, you can move your robot. By right clicking on your robot and selecting Edit Robot, you will now have access to a triad to move the robot around. You can also select individual axis or joint to move the robot into specific configurations.
  1. Lastly, you can use MachineLogic and simulate your application. This will enable you to have an in-dept reach study with specific robot positions, with an adjusted TCP base on your application specific EOAT. You can also simulate the motion if you are working in tight space. And good news, that simulation can be used for the deployment of your robotic cell !
